    I think is not possible to convert exfat to fat32, but in ntfs for me it's ok.

    just click start>run>type CMD and after convert X: /fs:ntfs


    PS: Instead X type the Letter of your usb storage.

    Why do you want to convert? Just backup the data on the usb to hard drive, then format the drive in fat32 and copy the files back.
